About the Artist
Creating original pieces of art is Hilary's passion. Hilary Hollingworth started her training at the age of 16 when she first went to Art School in Lancashire to study fashion design. Though she followed a career in Fashion, first as a designer and for the last 25 years as a teacher, her love of stitching and communicating her ideas through stitch have developed. She now combine's her skills and experience to produce original textile art.She channels her inspiration from her heritage, background and traveling into her stitched pieces and collage. Hilary Hollingworth specialties include working the design process through to finished textile work hand and machine stitching, felt making and her signature darn / weave technique.Her work is for sale and commissions are undertaken.Please get in touch through the contact page for more information!
Hilary is still working on two articles for 'Stitch' magazine and hopes to have them ready to send off soon. She will keep you updated. Though at the moment home and working life is making demands on time she is still managing to work on a significant piece related to her frequent visits to Hong Kong. Hilary's latest work was seen at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate last November. Where she could be seen teaching ' Darning with Gold on the Learning Curve. The show is a great opportunity to catch up with friends, renew supplies and be inspired. It is always interesting to see how the work of textile artists develops each year and work is already in progress for the 2011 show.
Hilary Hollingworth is a textile artist who works with fabric and thread to design and produce a variety of work. She works mainly, though not exclusively, with hand stitch techniques and has developed a personal way of using darning/ needle weave to produce textile art work that reflects her background and her travels. The pieces sometimes tell stories and sometimes are colourful pieces suited to interior decoration. She also produces original art from her drawings and photographs from traveling.
In her work she she explores the form and structure of cloth and the process of creating fabric using needle and thread.
